Thiago Alcantara and Bayern Munich, it’s over. The German club got it pretty quickly, once the player turned down the proposed contract extension, remaining bound until 2021 only. The need for a new challenge was heard by the Bavarian management, which did not try to retain it unduly.
However, she was not going to sell him off. The sum of 30 M € was claimed from the courtiers, corresponding to the contractual situation and the age of the Spanish international (29 years old). Liverpool were quickly named as the big favorites since it was there that the midfielder really wanted to sign. But the Reds played the clock, annoying Bayern more and more.
Liverpool agree to pay € 30m
But this time, things have moved forward. As reported The Athletic, Liverpool has launched its offer, and it sticks to Munich’s demands. An agreement has been reached between the two clubs. Bayern wanted the matter to be settled before their resumption of the Bundesliga, scheduled for Friday against Schalke 04.
It is now up to Thiago Alcantara to come to an agreement with Liverpool, which should be a formality. He comes to reinforce an already very well constituted squad. His arrival could encourage the Reds to let Georginio Wijnaldum slip away, courted by Ronald Koeman at FC Barcelona. With a possible Fabinho-Henderson-Thiago Alcantara midfielder, Liverpool has enough to scare many teams!
